What is the name of your state? FL
I have G6PD deficiency. And among the list of drugs to avoid is Sulfonamides. I have been prescribed Celebrex, and finishing the samples (6-days dosage) that I was given, I went to the pharmacy to fill my prescription. There I was asked whether I am allergic to any sulphur drugs? I only know that I have G6PD and not really fully aware of the drugs that I have to avoid. I informed the pharmacist accordingly and he continued to fill my prescription anyhow.
Upon reaching home, I check the web, and realised that it is recommended for people allergic to Sulfonamides not to take Celebrex. I have not seen any side effect yet, but I am extremely worried. I am not sure if the doctor(s) have taken into my G6PD considerations when prescribing Celebrex. And I am not sure what possible side effects that could arise.
That really enrage and disturb me as my doctor has appaprently failed to take reasonable care and exercise skill expected of him.
Legally speaking, is my doctor in anyway liable?
